Job description

We have an opportunity for a senior engineer to take a leading role in our market-leading restaurant intelligence platform. The back end is built with node.js, NestJs and TypeScript. 

You will be part of a cross-functional team that is building solutions which transform how restaurants design menus, manage kitchens and improve their service. The feature set of the platform is developing fast, so you'll have a lot of new functionality to plan and engineer. 

We’re a fast-growing company, building innovate products of value to restaurants and their guests. The rest of your team will be smart and talented, and focused on pulling together to succeed in a fast-paced, stimulating environment. We work in a kanban style, continuously delivering through the week.

The team in part based in London, and part-remote, so we're used to working as part of a distributed team. Each quarter we host a Dev Summit in London which you'll be invited to.

You need to have excellent communication skills, be analytical, have a good sense of humour, not take yourself too seriously, be able to support the development of less experienced team members and, most importantly, have a passion for best-in-class solutions.

The rest of our stack is in MySQL, AWS, Kubernates and Angular. There may be an opportunity to move into these areas later, if that interests you.

Skills and requirements

You must have at least 5 years programming experience and a strong background with node.js, Typescript and MySQL.

You need to understand how to build apps that are high performance and scalable. A lot of people are going to be using your code.

Skills summary:

  • Node.js
  • TypeScript
  • MySQL
  • Testing
  • Git

You must already hold an EU passport or visa, and be located inside the EU.


  • Competitive salary
  • Remote working
  • Generous annual leave
  • Potential for share options


Please apply via Stack Overflow. For you application to be considered, you must include:

  • your CV
  • some links to products you’ve worked on in the past
  • a few words about why you'd like to work with us

If you have any questions at all, just send us a message.

We don’t work with 3rd party recruiters so please don’t get in touch if that’s you.

Life at Yumpingo

About Yumpingo

Yumpingo is bringing big data to the restaurant industry, with a deeper and broader knowledge of what people eat, where and when, than any other source. Our intelligence platform for restaurants captures more live diner reviews than any other. Our mission is to enable the world to find, serve and share more food we love.

You can see some examples of how we're disrupting the restaurant sector here.

Our SaaS platform  is used by hundreds of restaurants in the UK and USA, delivering unique dish-level insights at unprecedented scale. Guests complete our 1-minute review at the end of the meal, either on Yumpingo devices, which replace traditional bill presenters, or on their own device.

We help restaurants and groups to develop new dishes, improve consistency across venues, optimise food quality and service, and, ultimately, make more of their guests happier.

Other than that, we’re a friendly and passionate bunch of engineers, data scientists and food experts based in Covent Garden, London, who are working together to help the world serve better food.
